>> why should american voters beieve that the republican party has moved beyond where it was paying for you know, two wars, which a lot of conservatives believe amounted to profligate spending, t.a.r.p. was extended under this president. bailouts for the banks. all of these things, the prescription drug benefit under medicare. what is the evidence that this party has moved beyond that? >> i would tell you this, i would think the evidence of that is the 2010 election. so many, so many of us ran, including myself, and you know what, i've acknowledged that when we look at the debt, this is a bipartisan issue. that republicans spent too much and democrats spend too much and you'll hear paul ryan talk about that. >> he voted for all of those things and he's number two on the ticket. >> when you look at leadership, look at what paul ryan has done. when you've had harry reid in the senate saying it would be foolish to pass a budget. at least he put forward ideas, real road map. so you can criticize it. but where are the ideas on the other side?
